Opt for Touchless Check-in

For a touchless check-in experience we highly recommend that you check-in online 48 hours before the flight (24hrs to/from the USA and Tahiti). At the airport, all you have to do is to go to the baggage drop-off area with your boarding pass.

Depending on your departure airport, your temperature may be checked using a non-contact infrared thermometer. Your temperature must be below 38°C/100.4 °F. If your temperature is higher than this, you may be denied boarding.

Fly Well Protected

Wearing a disposable mask or KN95 mask is mandatory at the airport and on-board French bee flights for travelers aged 11 and above. It is strongly recommended that children aged between 6 and 11 wear one. For flights from/to the USA, wearing a mask is mandatory for all passengers aged 2 and above.

Make sure to take your masks with you when you disembark. For health reasons, they must not be left in the seat pockets or on the ground. You can also use the bins available in the lavatories.

Authorized types of masks
  • At the airport:

It is compulsory to wear a face mask upon your arrival at the airport.

  • On board:

- The decree n° 2020-860 dated 10 July 2020 has made the wearing of a disposable mask on board flights. This type of mask must be changed every 4 hours. Remember to bring a sufficient number of masks for your whole family and for the duration of a long-haul flight.

- FFP2 and FFP3 masks without valve (KN95 mask) are also allowed for passengers boarding French bee aircrafts.

- Cloth face masks are not accepted on board. Passengers refusing to wear a mask will be denied. 


Fresh air throughout the flight

You will be flying an Airbus A350 XWB (Extra Wide Body), probably the most modern and highest-performing long-haul aircraft. Its air recirculation system consists of HEPA filters meaning High Efficiency Particulate Arresters.They have similar performance to those used in hospital operating rooms : they are able to capture viruses with a size equivalent to Covid-19 and cabin air is thus completely refreshed every 3 minutes.

For your safety, we recommend to avoid the use of personal air supply in order to limit the droplets projection.
